  16. 16. Keep trying: <ul><ul><li>Don’t forget people are still getting hired, even in the worst employment situation in our lifetimes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not throw your CV’s into an ocean of CV’s and forget about it, choose well specialized job boards for you and check the updates in regular bases </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Choose well your Tools <ul><ul><li>Do not rely only on big generalist job boards , choose well specialized job boards to avoid massive competition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Professional networks can give you a great push on the way of job hunting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Build connections with people who are recruiting </li></ul></ul>

  21. 21. Put more lines in the water: <ul><ul><li>Personal network is good, but do not rely on it as the only way to find a job.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Build up your profile in different networks , job sites and choose well the special ones for you which you should check on a regular basis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There are many potential ways, and you won’t know which channel will deliver the opportunity that’s right for you. </li></ul></ul>
